We definitely enjoyed being able to enjoy the Boston sites without getting wet from all the rain there was when we went. Traffic is terrible in Boston so please take in to account extra time on the trolley if you want to get to a site at a certain time. If you have family members who can’t walk much or get tired quickly this is an excellent option for them and for others as well.

Great way to see the city and be in the best position to enjoy our time in Boston. The tour takes you to every special place in Boston. The drivers are knowledgeable and fun. They provided a personal overview of the city and had many terrific historic and fun facts also great suggestions for food and fun. So happy we began our trip this way.

Wish original driver would have told us at the beginning that best to get off at stops we wanted to visit as we went along instead of taking full ride first for an overview. He didn’t mention it until cruisers boarded and then it was too late for us to be able to get back to stops we wanted. Stops that were closed were not shared early enough for us to get to be an alternate route so we missed some sites I wanted to visit like Paul Revere’s house and Old North Church.
